Spread the knowledge. Become an ACI.

Adobe Certification

When it comes to teaching or training others in the use of Adobe products, there's no better qualification than being certified by Adobe. By becoming an Adobe Certified Instructor (ACI), you can be confident that you'll get the support you need to make your Adobe classes successful, with access to a wide range of Adobe resources - including training materials, timely product updates, and promotional opportunities.

What is an ACI?

An Adobe Certified Instructor is an Adobe Certified Expert (ACE) or or Adobe Certified Professional (ACP) who has taken his or her skills to the next level and provides instruction on Adobe products.
